New year, new Mama June!
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star underwent weight loss surgery last year— and it was all for her new reality show, Mama June: From Not to Hot.
In an preview of the upcoming docu-drama, the mother-of-four says goodbye to her old life (including her cheating ex-husband Sugar Bear) and undergoes a gastric sleeve procedure to help kick start her weight loss.
“After the weight loss surgery, I’m going to look completely different,” the 37-year-old tells her daughters Alana aka Honey Boo Boo and Lauryn, better known as Pumpkin in a clip of the show on People.
However, not everyone is excited for Mama June’s transformation.
“I don’t want you to look different,” her daughters tell her before going into surgery. However, it isn’t long before the trio is laughing through tears.
Last year, Mama June showed off her 150-pound weight loss on Botched, where she went for a tummy tuck consultation.
“Honestly, when I first started losing weight, it was just being more active, being busy with the show and doing more things with Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” she told In Touch. “I went from like a [size] 28 to a 16 — and these pants are a little too big!”
On the show, fans will also see Mama June upgrade her home, trade in the “sketti” for personal training sessions and complete a drastic makeover that leaves her daughters in complete shock.
“There is no way in hell that’s you Mama,” Pumpkin says in disbelief.
“Goodbye to this old life, goodbye to men who don’t treat me right, and goodbye to this old body,” Mama June exclaims. “When I’m done, I’m not even going to recognize my own self in the mirror. Y’all better get ready.”
Mama June: From Not to Hot will premiere on WEtv on Feb. 24 at 10 p.m. ET. For a look back at her impressive weight loss transformation so far, click through the gallery below!
